Sweat Away Fat to Fix Obesity

The University of Pennsylvania looking for a diabetes treatment have accidentally developed an innovative, even revolutionary treatment for weight loss. Treating obese mice with the cytokine known as TSLP led to significant abdominal fat and weight loss compared to controls. Unexpectedly, the fat loss was not associated with decreased food intake or faster metabolism. TSLP …
